We had the fish tacos. It came with pineapple jicama salsa which was very good. The restaurant had a very large gluten free menu.

Stopped for lunch during the festival as it was raining and wanted to get out of the weather. Staff was great. Food was e even better. Cried calamari may have been the best I have ever had. Fish tacos we're very good as well

Ate lunch here on a busy Saturday. Waited about 30' for a table but could stroll around the Bowen's wharf shopping area because the restaurant texted when table ready. Restaurant has tables tucked into nooks and crannies both upstairs and downstairs. Tables were very close...More
